So when they dropped their first version of what we know at this moment may well be Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 2.4 for handsets, as the developer team making this app call it, we went to downloading and now have a hands-on video for you to take a look at. What you're going to see is a few different ways to launch apps, a slightly different look to the interface, and the way you can download this free launcher for yourself.

iPhone 4 wins “world’s thinnest smartphone” rights against Samsung

Quick-fire question: What's the thinnest smartphone on the market?

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

Instead Kim reinforced our already strong faith in the Samsung Telecommunications brand by noting that it was the market that decided where Samsung would make its next set of moves.
